The Hebard era had begun.
Dick Hebard and Fred Walker won their first title, defeating the previous year’s winners, Kip Couch and Charlie O’Hearn.
The Women’s Championship was reinstated after a hiatus of six years and Madeline Beck resumed winning. She had won the last five events (1938-1942) with Marie Walker and now won with her sister Maizie Moore.
The Mixed was won by the husband and wife team, Ronald and Elfi Carroll, a portent of things to come.
